Vicon introduces Virtual Matrix Display Controller

Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of integrated IP video surveillance and access control systems, introduces the Virtual Matrix Display Controller (VMDC), a powerful new matrix control solution for the ViconNet Video Management System designed to provide a user with the ability to direct network video to multiple high-definition monitor displays. Both live and recorded HD video may be displayed on the monitors by the VMDC.

The VMDC decodes JPEG4, MPEG4 and H.264 video for display on 16:9 and 4:3 high definition monitors. A single VMDC unit supports up to 6 high-definition monitors displaying multiple video streams, with each monitor offering a variety of camera display configurations. Control of additional monitors is as easy as connecting additional units to the network providing a scalable, cost-effective management solution. Typically, a VMDC would be installed in the command/control center for the video management system and provide both local control of monitors in the center and remote control of monitors located elsewhere in the facility, including monitor wall displays.

The VMDC operates using ViconNet version 6 but is backward compatible with systems operating with ViconNet 5 or later. Visit for more information.
